It would stand to reason that @doyll was speaking in the context of fans that are even remotely applicable to the context of the thread. On the other hand, you are talking about fans that have absolutely nothing to do with the conversation. It has about as much to do with @doyll's statement as someone saying "the specs do matter, look at the Honda Valkyrie and tell me specs don't matter!!!!!!". You are dragging apples (and non-existent apples, at that) into a conversation about oranges.

How you people turn a question about BitFenix/Cooler Master/NZXT 200mm fans into an argument about specs of non-existent industrial fans is beyond me. Ridiculous.

Gee, I wonder if they design fans to some sort of specifications (even consumer fans) or just randomly design fans and then come up w/the specifications afterwards ?biggrin.gif

Excellent point. It has absolutely nothing to do with anything here, though...... You're reaching. Really reaching at this point. Good luck in your quest for an argument about imaginary fans. thumb.gif

For at least a part if the of consumer fans, I have no doubt its the latter.

Can't speak for the 200mm version but my 230mm spectre pro seems to do a much better job than most 230's I've tried. Most recent being the stock rosewill 230mm's in my thor v2 case. Case holds 3x 230mm wink.gif

You mean like the fans that are "LED first, then worry about airflow" designs? wink.gif
